Archive, Backup and Restore Shortcuts

Archive, Backup and Restore (previously archived or backed up) Shortcuts


Title says it all. After loosing all my (previously backed up) Shortcuts due to iCloud sync issues and user error, and then running into challenges trying to restore a backup (didn't work because iOS 14.4.x can't restore nor import from a file), I've decided to make lives easier for everyone. A minor modification will allow for scheduling regular backups using Shortcuts' Automations.

Latest Release Notes

2.0 - March 27, 2021, 11:43 p.m.

Modified the shortcuts so that it can now be passed a command that drives one of the 4 actions (Archive Shortcuts, Restore from Archive, Backup all Shortcuts and Restore from Backup. This way the Shortcut can be used in iOS Automations, especially when using it for re-occuring backups. When using in an automation, you'll want to pass in a Dictionary with a Key called "Command" and its value being one of the 4 actions (for example, "Backup All Shortcuts").
